T for Tree ABC Christmas Challenge..DT card.. and wait for it wedding photo's...

This week we are edging ever closer to Christmas which really is quite scary,
To think that Helen and I started the Christmas ABC Challenge almost a year ago is astonishing! and we have be lucky enough to have a brilliant sponsor for every challenge too, 

This year for me so far has had so many ups and downs, and I don't know if you do the same but towards the latter end of each year I think and even say NEXT year  will be a better year! But..... I have to say although this year as I said has had downs and some of them were really horrid like in June when 26 of our animals were stolen and we have never heard a thing as to where they went or who stole them.... we have had some super fantastic ups too! the best of which was our wedding in July, Now I did say I would add some more photos of our wedding and here are a few.....

Signing the registrar

 Nipping out for a few craft essentials


The Proof!

Well earned rest! can you see the writing on my shoes
they were all good luck wishes from our bridal party...

The cake that wasn't cake... But had made chocolates instead... yum!

I love black and white Photo's

Well I hope you like the photo's
And now I have bored you all to death! Here comes the T for Tree Challenge


OK so on to this fortnights Challenge @ ABC Christmas... If you have not started your Christmas cards yet then WHAT are you waiting for???? Head over to the challenge and pick up some inspiration...

The Challenge is T for Tree with the optional extra of buttons,
Our sponsor this time is Regina from The Cutting Cafe' and she was Kind enough to send us some things to use for our DT cards so here is mine


I had a bit of a fight with my printer but once I sorted that it was OK
I printed the tree onto some tartan card and cut the tree out, the heart button was blue but I have changed the colour to suit my card, I also changed the star brad from silver to red and added glamour dust with spray mount, I have used some kraft card thanks Helen for the sample...  the string was from a tag off of some clothing and the wording backing paper is also from Cutting Cafe'

The Tartan and Kraft card can be found at Penrith Crafts now and the tartan card comes in different colours too!

I would also like to enter my card into a couple of challenges 

Sweet Stamping - Stitching
A Spoon full of sugar
- Anything goes
Saturday Challenge - Anything goes
Stamp Somthing  - September digi  day
